storytelling to help clients support and feel good about
themselves. Eli uses the ancient craft of storytelling to
enable individuals and groups to reflect positively upon the
critical issues of their life. This technique is important
when addressing areas where people are seeking intuitive
answers to difficult and challenging questions about their
lives. His lecture will explore the process of finding and
discovering your authentic voice and how it will often lead
to recognition and celebration of your story. The lecture
will also outline challenges that must be considered, in
